    Hi,

    I'm into graphic design ext. type niche and I want to gain clients more effectively and build my brand. I now want to get a US Skype number (never done business with US clients so I don't know what to expect) however there are so many areas to pick from and I want to make a smart choice.

    What suggestions could you give me to select the best area? I thought about time differences so it's a bit better for me (I'm in EU, so the time difference is big) as well as location as I would think that people in USA need to pay higher call fees if they need to call outside their state, so I thought something central maybe..

    I want the number on Ad posts and my web (also gonna use other country # in the web, but thats a much easier choice)

    My first choice would be San Francisco area since it is world known for it start up scene, however would it be the best choice?
    What area number do you use, if you use?
    Any tips?

    Thanks ahead!

    FYI talked to US mate, he said it dosn't really matter, just needs to be a big city so I'm going with SF since it is start up capital..

    That is fairly good advice. No one will really care - but a large city is a safe bet. SF is known for being a tech hub, so it may look more trustworthy for a design business.
